How tall is your sunflower getting?
It’s time to start preparing it for the great outdoors by hardening off because you don’t want your sunflower to experience transplant shock when you permanently move it outside. Hardening off is easy. You’ll put your sunflower outside during the day and back inside overnight. You can start putting it outside from mid-late May, after the final frost because sunflowers don’t like frost.
Try setting a daily reminder on your phone to bring your sunflowers outside in the morning and inside in the evening.
